I've seen this chart (same chart from different sites) floating around Facebook and Pinterest a lot here lately. I did a search to find the articles on some of the sites and ended up only being able to find it on MFP. I thought it was pretty interesting. What do you think? It got me thinking and I think I might have to try some of the substitutes to see if it works.

I'd be curious to hear the science on this. I'm not sure if I buy this or not. I just can't see broccoli killing a sugar craving. That being said, I've been eating alot of broccoli lately and haven't craved sugar at all. I tend to have problems with cravings around my period and I think it has more to do with my hormones than my nutrition.

Yeah, I dunno either. I don't really buy it either. If I want chocolate, broccoli is the last thing I want.

To be fair though, I eat the chocolate. lol. If I want it, I make it work in my calorie goal. This in general, cuts my cravings waaaaaay down.

when I crave sweets I tend to go to fruits anyways...specially pineapples!! MY FAVORITE!! I rarely crave chocolate, as I am not a big fan of it anyways and have it maybe once a month.... my biggest craving is red meat only because I am borderline anemic and salty foods because my salt level is actually low....

What is your body's reaction to your salt level being low? I'm just curious because sometimes (not too often) I get really shaky and a bit dizzy/light headed. I'm not sure what is causing it, but seems like it happens so infrequently that if I make a dr appointment to have it checked out, they won't find anything because it won't be happening at that time. I've tried eating lots of things and waiting 30 minutes or more to see if it helps. I've tried sugar/candy to see if maybe my sugar is low....nothing, I've tried protein...nothing, Can't remember if I have tried salty foods or not. The only thing that I have found that usually helps is to drink gatorade. Only thing I can figure is maybe I'm low on electrolytes?

I used to get this years ago when I was working. I'd get kind of dizzy and have a hard time concentrating on things. I've since found it was iron deficiency. If your iron levels low, you will get this, so eat something with iron and see if that helps. For me, that was saltier foods.

I dunno I get dizzy, lightheaded, REALLY TIRED, weak headaches, confussion/can't concentrate, I get muscle cramps sometimes...sometimes I feel excessively thirsty...but I have no idea what is due to the iron levels or the sodium levels..probably both LOL

***googling****
yeah that pretty much sums up both....hmmm

I'm wondering if it could be your blood pressure. I have kinda low blood pressure to begin with but when I get dehydrated it can get really low. Maybe you're getting dehydrated and it's causing your blood pressure to drop. Just a thought. These things are sometimes hard to figure out.

Never thought of that. I'm going to add that to my list of possibilities. My grandpa has issues with his blood pressure getting low, so maybe it is something hereditary.
